Kiwis are getting pumped for the Joseph Parker fight tonight in Christchurch, with many stars sending their love for Joe ahead of the bout. 

Joseph Parker takes on Alexander Flores at Horncastle Arena in Christchurch tonight in the heavyweight fight. 

Parker is the former WBO world champion but is no longer ranked in the top 15 by the organisation, although he is ranked No5 by the WBC.

They weighed in yesterday with Parker at a very trim yet muscular 109.25kg – he has a clear physical advantage over the 107.95kg Flores. 


There are loads of stars getting pumped for the fight too. The Mad Butcher, Sir Peter Leitch, who is a massive fan of Joseph Parker, as well as the Vodafone Warriors posted a photo of him heading down to Christchurch for the fight. 

Vodafone Warriors star Roger Tuivasa Sheck also gave some love for Joe Parker, posting to his Instagram story to wish the best to Parker, as well as former Warrior Manu Vatuvei, who takes on Dave "The Brown Buttabean" Letele on the undercard fight tonight. 

All the best Joseph and Manu - we're behind you!
